Heat Transfer Printing Method (Paper Transfer) Inkjet, Laser jet & Sublimation Inks 

The computer has definitely changed our lives and the way we do things. Faster and more sophisticate, time needed for T-Shirt Printing is reduced tremendously. 

All that is required: a computer, an output machine and a 
Heat Press machine. It only takes about 5 minutes to produce a neat T-Shirt.
